By George! I think we've got it. THAT is the articulation I (and likely others) have been trying to come up with.

FK DUDE!!!!! That's IT exactly!!!!!!!

the right to be broken and damaged.

The X Ammendment to The Survivor's Constitution:

The right of the abused to be broken and damaged shall not be infringed nor shall it be used or perverted against him in life. We recognize that there is actual and lasting damage of varying degrees, unique to each survivor, important and significant to each survivor. That broad characterizations such as Victim Mentality labels are potentially damaging and dangerously trivializing, if not agressive in attack.
